    win 8 mess; task manager, antivir, admin problems

    Hello there.

    I am using win 8
    but today something shitty happened.
    Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
    this was the first thing.
    I cannot run anything as administrator. 0. nada. (I think i can open CMD in safe mode as admin)
    I tried to uninstall my Anti Virus (kaspersky) it requires admin rights, there is no uninstall.exe in the program : (
    I tried randomly to open task manager, but nothing happens.\
    I tried creating new user to shift right and etc, nothing works.

    edit: I have tried the user options too.
    PLEASE help.

    Sounds virus related as its locked you out of the machine. Try a System Restore from W8 Advance Boot Options. See if this will run.
